Earlier this month, Megan Thee Stallion told fans on Twitter that she suffered gunshot wounds after an altercation on July 12 in which she was shot while getting out of a car. Tory Lanez, who was also in the car, was arrested on a felony gun charge. In an emotional Instagram Live video, posted yesterday (July 27), Megan discussed the “super scary” experience, which resulted in her having to get surgery for two gunshot wounds.
“I see a lot of people painting fake ass narratives and making up stories and all this other wack ass shit, but I also see a lot of people being very supportive and sending prayers and I just really appreciate that,” she said. “I was shot in both of my feet, and I had to get surgery to get the shit taken out, get the bullets taken out, and it was super scary.”
She added: “I didn’t think I was gonna cry. But yeah I had to get surgery, it was super scary, it was just the worst experience of my life, and it’s not funny. It’s nothing to joke about and it’s nothing for y’all to go and be making fake stories about. I didn’t put my hands on nobody. I didn’t deserve to get shot.”
The 25-year-old artist also addressed the public reaction to the story, criticising the grown men who “chime in” on things that aren’t their “business”.
“What if your motherfuckin’ sister got shot? What if your motherfuckin’ girlfriend got shot? What if your motherfuckin’ best friend got shot? Would you be crackin’ jokes then?” she said.
“I just want y’all to know a bitch is alive and well and strong as fuck and ready to get back to my regular programming with my own hot girl shit,” she said to end the video.
